Instagram influencer Katrina Dandridge shares three perfect outfits from The Mall at Millenia (pictured) for the ultimate Orlando getaway.
Have you ever planned a vacation and looked in your closet and realized you have nothing to wear? Yikes! This calls for an impromptu shopping trip. Part of the excitement for a vacation is planning your itinerary and for every activity, there’s a perfect outfit to go with it.
I recently visited The Mall at Millenia for one mission: Find three new looks for my Orlando getaway. Keeping style and comfort in mind, The Mall at Millenia offers a variety of exclusive stores and brands. It’s everything you could dream of one in shopping haven. They’ll even set you up with a personal shopper if you want some expert advice in choosing the perfect styles for your Orlando adventures.
So, as you take those Insta-worthy vacation photos, make sure you look fabulous while making memories that last a lifetime!
Orlando Styles for Theme Parks & Attractions
When I think of my theme park outfit of the day, I think comfort! And with high temps here in Orlando, I look for clothes that will keep me cool. Fortunately, you do not have to compromise on style for comfort when you’re hitting up the parks at Walt Disney World® Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld® Orlando and LEGOLAND® Florida Resort. Don’t forget the amazing attractions on International Drive (aka I-Drive) and beyond, either — including The Wheel at ICON Park®, where I went with this outfit!

I chose this relaxed-fit dress from Loft because it was lightweight and airy. A day out at any attractions here in Orlando calls for lots of walking — make sure to have your step counter on you! — so I paired the dress with comfortable white sneakers for support.

Now that I have my outfit, I couldn’t forget the accessories. Sunglasses might be the most important detail of this entire look. Good thing that Loft has so many selections to cater to any style or preference. I found the cutest pair of cheetah print sunglasses to match my dress. Lastly, I rummaged through the jewelry and found icy blue earrings that gave my look the pop of color it needed.

Orlando Styles for Ecotourism Adventures
Let’s go on an adventure! Athleta offers an abundance of durable and stylish options that are perfect for exploring Orlando’s great outdoors, including kayaking, nature trails, zip-lining, airboat tours and so many other ways to play. To try out this new look, I made a date with Epic Paddle Adventures for some fun on the sun and on the water.

I love Athleta’s fashion-forward looks for the gym or running errands around town. It’s the type of clothes that you can go for a morning jog and hit up your favorite brunch spot with your pals later. It is exactly why I chose Athleta for my ecotourism look.

With an afternoon of paddleboarding on the agenda, I wanted to find something that was not only cute but also flexible and sweat resistant. And in my case, water resistant. I recently discovered the Athleta brand, but I must say with so many affordable options to mix and match, I am here to stay.

Orlando Styles for Nightlife
Whether it’s a dinner, show, club or lounge, and no matter if I’m hitting downtown Orlando, I-Drive or anywhere else in the area, I like my nightlife wear to make a statement. Buckle is a retail chain that stocks trendy stylish wear for both men and women, including graphic tees, shoes and my personal favorite, jeans. You cannot go wrong with a perfect pair of jeans, and most people can relate to the daunting task of finding a decent pair.

Not only did I fall in love with all the styles ranging from “skinny” to “flair,” I was exceptionally impressed with the quality and size options. I might be obsessed with these ripped high-rise jeans that fit me just right.

To complete my look, I found a graphic tee and a fierce animal print kimono. As far as the statement piece, the award goes to the very on-trend cow print heels. The perfect shoe with the perfect jeans gives me the confidence to mingle and strike a pose on this night out on the town.
